Jeremy the MMA Analyst on youtube went to a Karo Parisyan seminar and found out he was fighting Hector Lombard at UFC 78


One household UFC name that has long been without a scheduled opponent is welterweight contender Karo “The Heat” Parisyan............

There was also this ARTICLE AT MMAJUNKIE.COM a while ago that says it was either going to be Sakurai or Lombard and now with Mach signing for K1 its set, will be great fight between the best judo guys in mma

why are they having him fight guys that aren't ranked? They are having all the other top welterweights fight each other and just leaving him out of title contention. lame

luke cummo, thiago alves, marcus davis, or drew fickett...all are better picks than lombard. At least they are known names to the casual UFC fan...I personally think that even though he lost to Diego that he should be give a fight with Ko or Fitch to see who is in line for a title shot after Gsp gets his.

What the hell are you talking about? Do you not know who Hector Lombard is?

I've been an MMA fan for quite a while now. Granted, I can't watch every single Pride and UFC event, but I'm a knowledgeable grappling fan and I can be considered a better-than-average fan. I don't know who Hector Lombard is. The name isn't as recognizeable to the average UFC fan. It does look like they're leaving Karo out of contention, even if that may not be the case. That being said, where can I research this Lombard dude?

Wow. this is lame. Karo is an A-level fighter. He is so impressive. Yet, he gets no chance at any top 10? bad choice for the UFC. He could tear a hole through most top WW's if they give him a chance.

You guys are whining about Lombard not being a top 10 ranked WW but really what top 10 guy could actually fight Karo in Nov - Fitch? no he just fought, Diego? No, same, Shields? No he is in Elite XC, Kos - Bit tight timing but is the only possible imho and Josh wouldnt take this fight which would be less than 3 months after his loss to GSP

You may be missing the fact that Hector is a world class judo guy, as good if not better than Karo, i think he represented Cuba in the olympics ffs, so while he may not be well known with just a few fights in PRIDE it will be a WAR and make his name in the UFC
